Descendants of Charles Emile Lauwers
Looking for relatives of Charles Emile Lauwers of BELGIUM.
These are the facts as I've been told.Emiel (or Emile) and Adele Lauwers had at least 2 children (in Belgium), then came to AR.When? I haven't even begun to deduce an approx. time yet.Charles apparently left or divorced Adele and went back to BELGIUM.Their son, Marcel Herbert Phillip Lauwers b. 1896 in BEL applied for naturalization in 1945 at the age of 49.He was a short man, though I do not remember his height.My uncle owns this document and I remember seeing a picture of Marcel with the naturalization picture.I remember being surprised that he was shorter than I expected (abt. 5'6" - height was documented on the papers).Marcel had a brother named Gabriel b. 1900 (wife's name Pearl) and they also lived in Redlands, CA.
Marcel H.P. Lauwers b. 1896 BEL m. Monta Mae Rodden b. 1896 AR.Both died Redlands, CA and are buried in Montecito Memorial Park, Loma Linda, CA.
Herbert Marcel Lauwers b. 1922 Jenny Lind, AR.
Denise Lauwers (married a Donagy)
I wish I knew more, but my father and uncles (children of Herbert Marcel Lauwers and Alice Moschner) know very little about their grandfather and great-grandfather.
